Such an inspiring homily (Fr. Paul) and readings (all of them!) for today's Mass. In the Gospel reading from Mark 9: 2-10, the three disciples witness our Lord's transfiguration! Along with transfigured Jesus, Elijah and Moses appear along conversing with him. After they hear the voice of God, they are alone again with Jesus – Elijah and Moses had disappeared. Moses sums up what God had done through the Law and Elijah is the greatest prophet , a  harbinger of the Messiah. Because Jesus is the fulfillment of the Law and Prophecies, Moses and Elijah were no longer needed. And now imagine,  the same Jesus, that appeared in all his glory on the mountain, the same Jesus, the creator and  saviour of the Universe is right here… He wants to be so much part of you and of your life that He wants to be your Food, not just spiritual, but actual food, in the Eucharist. The New Transfiguration is this, he changes into the bread and wine to be able to change a human heart! He humiliated himself and becomes such a little thing, so he can enter into our hearts, through the Eucharist. Without the Eucharist, the Mass is this empty ritual… And even more, when the priest says "Pray brethren, that my sacrifice and YOURS may be acceptable to God " we can offer our heart as well, we can put our heart in the Eucharistic sacrifice, offer ourselves to God so he can freely build that clean and open heart within us! +++ #MyMasstakeaway #homily #sermon #mark9 #transfiguration #jesus #drawclosertogod #lovegod #godinspired #openjourney #religiousart #christianart #biblejournaling #faith #faithjournal #catholic #eucharist #moses #elijah #stgerardparish #gospel #ingridblixt #TB2G #openjourney
